Plasma cystatin C, a new marker of glomerular filtration rate (GFR), was prospectively evaluated in surgical intensive care. Cystatin C was measured (immunonephelometry, Dade-Behring) in 10 patients selected to cover a full range of GFR (phase I) and in 28 unselected consecutive patients followed for 5 days post-admission (phase II). Results were compared with (51)Cr-EDTA clearance (phase I only), plasma creatinine (kinetic Jaffe, Roche), 24-h or estimated by Cockcroft and Gault (CG) creatinine… CONTINUE READING
